It was on a dreary New Years Eve
A lorry load of volunteers later, Celtic have successfully turned back time Delorean style, and landed in pitch black o’clock. Gone with the wind, are our invincibles no longer ‘five up’ on fifty eight minutes, we’re strictly in the the Bobby Tait time doldrums. The big Letdownski of a Club Lazurus still known as Rainjurz languishing anywhere , even in the bottom division festers in the bosom of Celtic supporter till today. They’ve just about soft loaned it to success, it shows in Timdom they did it, by hook and by crook, league whatever, didn’t matter the licence to stop Celtic in operation however many in a row, was secured all those years ago, the rest was nothing personal, just business.
Brendan Rodgers dropped his baton too soon for ten, and what he left behind spirited itself, right out the door before it had time to hit his shiny white pudendum on the way out. With no saviour, and no applications in sight, ‘conservative’ men did what they thought was right even though the new manager had his own doubts never mind his doubters. No club can win its league indefinitely, not even our miraculous club, ten would have been nice eleven, twelve, thirteen or more would have been better, but not for a song. The men who guaranteed no ten anytime soon were, and still are contracted in Kings Park, Celtic went about our business in years eight, nine and ten poorly, we merely rounded up the usual suspects.
In so doing, Celtic left the door wide open to a single rival that could fund some of the very same suspects, punts and leftovers. Hey presto equilibrium was restored, to the extent we head for locked out subway loyal land, as rank outsiders for the first time since the original cheating years. Hoping for a mere performance at Ibrox Lou Macari style, should have been left in the dark days for our Celtic Da’s, but sadly we’re in deep Du Du, all over the pitch. Dissecting how we got here, personnel wise, is postponed today, because its just good versus evil time again and who could have predicted that a young Celtic goalkeeper would have been making his derby debut.
